I don't have a muffler at all. Or Handlebars. Or a seat.

This is all I got. I'll be ready for the Trot though, as soon as I get something to go under this stuff.

The Brute did a fantastic job, but it looks like it will be a GrizzLee this time Bob. The 550 EPS in Steel Blue is the leading candidate. So far, Romney has offered the best deal. Hey, if you ride in WV you might as well buy in WV!! Very Happy  And spend a day test riding it before bringing it home maybe.

WOW the Brute is gone

Your not the first one to leave the Force and move to the Blue side.
I think you will  be happy with the Grizzly.( I know you will not have that V TWIN power but what
you lack in that area you will make up in the ride and handling.
Also I have bought a few rides from Romney and was happy with the deal I got.

Good Luck and enjoy your new ride.

I was on my way to Romney to get ours but a stop here: http://www.tricountyhonda.com/ saved me about 40 minutes drive time and 300 bucks on the two atvs. If they are closer to you Lee you might check them out.
I think you'll be pleased with the Yamaha. You give up the hair on fire acceleration of the brute but you get a great ride, much sharper turning radius and for me never having to try to adjust two sets of valves again was a big plus. Since I'm a lard ass I got the 700 but for a little lad such as yourself the 550 would be a great ride Smile

Looks like Bob (Prairie Pounder), Ed (Mr Ed) and I (Farmer) will be coming down together Wednesday afternoon. I can't believe you're switching sides Lee! I have a Brute now and no RZR.

I'm not dissing the ole Brute in any way Farmer. It did me a fantastic job and I'm a better person for having owned it (and owning most folks that dared to pull up beside it). It set the bar fairly high. I'm sure there will be times when I will miss those other 200cc's. Wacker explained to me how the Yamahahaha 550 was a great girls ride. He didn't word it just that way, but that's what he said... Surprised

Just put 700 stickers on it - no one will know.

I know I was just giving you a hard time. Just came upon a good deal on this used one when I traded the RZR in.

I have three friends who swore they would never buy Yamaha. Two had the BF like Lee's, the other had a KQ 700.
All three tried my 700 when I had it, but then later bought the 550. They said you honestly can't tell the difference in everyday riding.
In 5 years I replaced only brake pads and wheel bearings, and that was from riding in the mud and creeks every time I rode.
